    An anonymous reader writes “Google has an interesting idea on how to take the edge off denial of service attacks. The latest developer builds of Chrome 12 have an option called ‘http throttling,’ which will simply deny a user access to a website once the browser has received error messages from the URL. Chrome will react with a ‘back-off interval’ that will increase the time between requests to the website. If there are enough Chrome requests flooding a website under attack, this could give webmasters some room to recover from a nasty DDoS attack.”
